This weekend I shall be celebrating my 19th  29th birthday. My first thought was to have a good old cry about the fact that I shall no longer be young and hot and that all my party days are behind me. However, I decided that instead I should celebrate the last year of my twenties by getting really drunk and having as much fun as possible. Enter the strawberry lemonade. It’s so good I have decided it shall be my signature party cocktail. It tastes just heavenly without being too sweet and it’s just perfect now the sunshine is well and truly out. I made mine with fresh strawberries since they are in season but you can always make it with frozen ones in the winter months to come.


250ml of Absolute citron

500g of Strawberries

6 tablespoons of Country Time lemonade powder (foreign food market/homeplus)

1 litre of Sprite


Sliced lemon and strawberries


Put the strawberries, vodka, and lemonade powder in a blender and blend until smooth. Top up with the sprite and stir. Serve over ice with a wedge or two of lemon. Drink until all birthday blues have been banished, but stop before you have difficulty standing up or have vomited all over your new dress. Happy birthday to me!

  1. Girl, you should celebrate because you are will soon enter your 30’s. (Which are much better than your 20s by the way.) Happy birthday. This cocktail looks scrumptious!
